To be dead while still alive : A literature review of experiences of depression among children and young people (English)
Abstract [sv]

Bakgrund:  Ungdomar som utvecklar depression i tonåren har en ökad risk att utveckla kroniska psykiska sjukdomar i vuxen ålder. Depression karaktäriseras av nedstämdhet och kan visa sig på flertalet sätt beroende på vilken ålder personen befinner sig i. Ungdomstiden och framförallt puberteten är präglad av psykiska, fysiska och kroppsliga omställningar som kan påverka personens mående. Syfte: Belysa barn och ungdomars erfarenhet av depression i åldrarna 12-25 år. Metod: Kvalitativ litteraturstudie. Resultat: Resultatet kategoriserades i fyra teman: copingmekanismer, stigmatisering, behov av stöd och emotionell smärta. Resultatet visade att hos ungdomar som utsätts för icke hanterbara krav och familjeproblematik kunde det generera i psykisk ohälsa och leda till depression. Slutsats: Att utvecklas från att vara tonåring till att bli vuxen kan medföra en känslomässig storm och en psykisk påfrestning för den enskilde och dennes omgivning. Ungdomar söker sällan hjälp i tid. Klinisk betydelse: Litteraturstudien kan bidra med hur hälso- och sjukvårdspersonal bättre kan bemöta barn och ungdomar med depression samt förhindra att sjukdomsprocessen blir längre och orsakar ett större lidande för den drabbade.

Abstract [en]

Background: Young people who suffer from depression in adolescence are at increased risk of developing chronic mental disorders in adulthood. The period of youth and particularly adolescence is characterized by mental, physical and bodily changes that may affect the person's mood. Depression is characterized by depressed mood and can appear in several different ways depending on the people’s age. Aim: Illustrate children's and young people's (aged 12-25 years) experience of depression. Method: Qualitative literature review. Results: The results were categorized into four themes: coping, stigmatization, support needs and emotional pain. The results showed that adolescents who are exposed to non-manageable demands, family problems could generate in mental illness and lead to depression. Conclusion: To evolve from being a teenager to being an adult can cause an emotional storm and psychological distress for the individual and his surroundings. Young people rarely seek help in time. Clinical significance: The literature study can contribute to how health professionals can better respond to children and adolescents with depression and prevent for disease process to become longer and causing greater suffering for the afflicted.
